Employment Housing

Tuesday, February 4, 2003 4:47 PM
Why must employees have a residence within a certain mile radius of parks in order to live in housing provided by the park? At Cedar Point, this radius is 25 miles. To me, the people that live within the 25 mile radius would be the ones who WOULDN'T need to live at the park. This doesn't make sense to me, because people who live longer distances from the park aren't allowed to live there.

EDIT: I changed the 20 miles to 25 after EagleGuy pointed out my mistake. Sorry about that.

Employees must be 18 years of age (or 17 and a high school graduate) and your permanent residence must be at least 25 miles from Cedar Point.

According to www.cedarpoint.com you must live atleast 25 miles from the park in order to be eligible for housing.

It sounds like what they mean is that you have to live within 25 miles to work at Cedar Point--if you don't, you can live in their dorms (which puts you well within that range).

Otherwise, why would they recruit all over the place?

Yeah, that means if you live closer than 25 miles from CP, you CAN'T live in the dorms.

It's all about getting around the barrels or over the fences, right leads, no faults, fastest time and still looking pretty when done. What's so hard about that? :)

they want people that live farther away to live in the dorms... because there is limited space... if they let everyone that has their perminant address really close to CP say in the dorms... there wouldnt be very much room for the outstate/faraway/foriegn employees... the 25 mile thing is if you live OUTSIDE the 25 mile radius you can live in the dorms...

This became way more complicated than it needed to be.

I must have mis-read the information when I was looking up employment housing. I could have sworn that you couldn't live in the dorms if you lived outside the radius. I'll do a little more research just to make sure.

I guarantee you that you must live outside the radius in order to live in the dorms. If you read something that stated otherwise it was a misprint. Cedar Point would not recruit in Pennsylvania, West Virgina, Southern Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, etc if they didn't allow people from there to live in employee housing.

I have heard of long commutes but that would be insane.

Heck, I met a guy from Egland working there the first time I went. For some reason, I doubt he was commuting...
